See Something, Say Something


At the airport on a crowded too-early Friday morning and struck by the sign:

“Report suspicious activity. If you see something, say something.”

Well, there you go. The official sanctioned policy of Homeland Security. So all you people who want to stay under the radar, who worry about mentioning “politics” on your Facebook post, who are silently compliant about all the suspicious activity going on in the White House, Homeland Security says you’re shirking your duty as a responsible American citizen. Silencing dissent and questioning is the first strategy of scoundrels and tyrants and runs against the foundational principles of democracy. As author Gunter Grass said:

“The job of a citizen is to keep his mouth open.”

So, good citizens, let's keep telling the truth about the emperor. I saw a recent post that there are 1,950 documented untruths that the man has claimed, averaging about 6 a day. These are no subjective opinions, these are simply lies. From his weight to the size of the inauguration crowd to no Russian collusion to the latest claims about Amazon to…well, who has time for 1,946 more?

So let's take heed of the airport mandate and keep reporting all suspicious activity. And keep it it all in mind as we head to the polls in November.
